  1. Steering Service Bulletin Denied - Advice Please

    i sent a note to Synergy asking if there was a replacement and they asked for a picture,of the brace and copy of the receipt. after i sent the info they told me they were sending me the new piece. Others have bitched about Synergy but they seemed very accommodating to me.
  2. Steering Service Bulletin Denied - Advice Please

    i have the synergy brace and the dealer reinstalled it after they did the tsb. the dealer never heard of the sector brace before and he was a bit scared about it when i first told him it was on the jeep. Once we crawled under and he saw what it was he said it’s no big deal and they popped it...

  4. New JL Steering Issue TSB 08-074-20 (for "Improved Steering Feel")

    they can’t charge you for a warranty service repair. If you want to play this game with them. Wait a day, then call and say your jeep is pulling all over the road. Don’t mention the TSB . They will certainly want to schedule schedule a service appt. .....that’s warranty work. There’s your...
  5. Steering Service Bulletin Denied - Advice Please

    Billable rate has very little to do with what they pay a mechanic. A dealer (or any service organization) has to take all monthly or yearly costs inclusive of wages, taxes, benefits, rent, heat, shop supplies, gas, power, secretarial, service writer costs, insurances, etc plus a fair mark up...
  6. Steering Service Bulletin Denied - Advice Please

    contact JeepCares and have them run interference on this for you. they have had great success in assisting owners with dealers too thick headed to understand they are required to do this. if you want to prove the TSB applies to you, open your hood and find the steering box. If it’s silver, it...

  8. Steering issues cured by installing new Steering gear box! (per TSB 08-074-20)

    final step in the formula would be check what your caster is at and where others have set it. It makes a real difference. I can only attest to a JLUR so your milage may vary.
  9. New JL Steering Issue TSB 08-074-20 (for "Improved Steering Feel")

    all depends on the approach, while others fought and are fighting with dealers, my approach cost me nothing and it was done in one day, no arguments. even had they elected to charge me a difference it would have been the best $100 i ever spent. Sometimes being their ally works better than...
  10. Loose steering feels like it has play and drifts

    Look at your steering box and see if its black or aluminum. If its black its the new "AA" series and minor deviations in steering could be the Jeep Thing. You can improve the handling to some degree with bringing the caster up to 5 or 6 since typical JLUR's come out with about 4.5 degrees...
  11. New JL Steering Issue TSB 08-074-20 (for "Improved Steering Feel")

    I read the last few (10 pages) of posts and I'm horrified to hear these nightmares. First off leaving it for 2-3 days ? its only a 2.5 hr. repair at the most. My dealer ordered the part, had it in 4 days later and did it happily in 1 day. No, they dont like doing it since they get a lower...

  15. Jeep Wrangler JL Stock Sound System

    i did not use the bass blocker and so far, so good since i want the bass. i was hoping the same speakers would also fit the 3.5” openings in the sound bar. They don’t so i’m kind of bummed out. Crutchfield shows the Kicker 3.5s fit the sound bar but i can’t see that working since they are the...

  17. What did you do TO your Jeep JL today?

    i spent the extra $10.00 and bought the Infinity ones for the front corners. Had to trim the ears a hair but super easy install. just wanted to up the quality a bit on my 8.4” system. Was quite pleased at the level of bass and clarity from these...definitely a improvement and not that...
  18. Confirmed: 2021 Jeep Wranglers have new improved steering gear box (from TSB 08-074-20)

    you must have done serious mods since most dealers will whine and then JeepCares gets them to do it anyway. I would reach out to jeepcares for intervention. other option is buy the parts do it yourself and have the dealer do the reflash. It’s an easy install..
